Ava’s hairdressers and barbers were doing a brisk trade on Tuesday, May 5th after Missouri Governor Mike Parson’s “Show Me Strong” Phase 1 plan allowed service businesses to reopen after being closed due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Todd Miller remarked that they had a line waiting when they opened, and had been busy enough to stay until 10 P.M.
